The Top 3 Best Sneakers for Kids with Wide Feet in 2020 – Extra Deep and Rounder Toe-Boxes!

the-best-shoe-brands-for-wide-feet

Do you have a child with wide feet and you always have a hard time finding shoes that fit? Are you always worried that the shoes might be pinching your child’s toes and your child might develop foot issues such as blisters?

I have put together a selection of the best shoes for kids with wide feet in 2020 based on my 10 years of experience fitting children’s shoes.  I have been working for a specialized children’s shoe store that focuses on children with foot and leg problems, but we provide regular shoe fittings as well.  This experience has afforded me many insights into children’s shoes and the way they fit.

Due to my experience in fitting thousands of kids, I became familiar with the best shoe brands for children with wide feet and the best styles among those brands.

One of the most common mistakes that I see parents make is to assume that a shoe that is labeled as wide (“W”) or extra wide (“XW) is going to automatically fit the shape of a child with wide feet. It’s important to choose the correct shoe width, but there are 2 other key features that the shoes must provide:

✅ Extra Depth: This feature allows the child’s feet to fit deeply inside the shoes and prevents the top part of the feet from rubbing against the top part of the shoes. In addition, this feature is going to prevent your child’s toes from rubbing against the top front part of the shoes.

✅ Rounder Toe-Boxes: This feature is going to prevent your child’s toes from rubbing against one another or the side of the shoes.

I get contacted on a daily basis by families from all over the world who want to know which are the best type of shoes for their children with wide feet. Children’s feet come in all different shapes and sizes, and some children might have a more “complicated” foot shape such as wide feet with a high instep.

Please note that shoes that are too narrow can lead to several foot issues that range from blisters, calluses, and corns to general foot and leg pain.

There is only a few selection of shoes capable of accommodating the shape of a child with wide feet, but the good news is that I know exactly which shoe styles these are from having fitted them before.

I have been helping parents find the perfect pair of shoes for their children online for the last 5 years, and I can help your child too. There have been 3 shoe styles that have proven to be the best choices for children with wide feet. In addition to being available in wide (“W”) and extra wide (“XW”) widths, the shoes provide extra depth and rounder toe-boxes.

These shoes are parent’s favorites and will help keep your child’s feet and legs healthy. Without further due, let’s take a look at a selection of the best 5 kids’ shoes for kids with wide feet in 2020.

#1 New Balance Shoe Style 680V6 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This shoe style is one of parents’ favorites for children with wide feet and high insteps. This style is available from toddlers sizes all the way up to big kid sizes and comes in medium (“M”), wide (“W”), and extra wide (“XW”) widths.

Parents love this shoe style because its durable and affordable at the same time. Let me show you what features has made this shoe style the best choice for kids with wide feet:

✅ Extra Depth: This allows the child’s feet to fit deeply inside the shoes and prevents the top part of their feet (instep) from rubbing against the top part of the shoes. This feature is also going to prevent the top part of your child’s toes from rubbing against the top front part of the shoes.

✅ Rounder Toe-Box: The rounder toe-box is going to allow your child to freely wiggle his/her toes and prevent them from rubbing against one another or the side of the shoes.

✅ Supportive: This feature is going to reduce the impact that your kids’ feet take when they come in contact with the ground.

✅ Lightweight and Flexible: It’s important for kids’ shoes to be lightweight and flexible in order to help them feel more stable and prevent their feet and legs from easily getting tired.

✅ Breathable: This feature is going to allow your child’s feet to breathe and prevent the feet from sweating excessively.

Additional features:

  • Velcro Closure or Shoelaces.
  • Removable Insoles.
  • Accommodates Orthotics.

Below you can find the 680V6 style for kids with wide feet. This shoe style fits from toddler sizes all the way up to big kid sizes.

Please note that this shoe style fits “true to size”, which means that you need to provide your child with a half a size to a whole size longer (3/8 of an inch) of their actual foot size in order to allow for growing room.

#2 New Balance Shoe Style 990V5/888V2 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This has been the second most popular shoe style for kids with wide feet. This style is available from toddlers sizes all the way up to big kid sizes and comes in medium (“M”), wide (“W”), and extra wide (“XW”) widths.

This shoe style is also durable but higher priced than the 680V6 style. I recommend this shoe style for children with very wide feet or for children who need to wear orthotics inside their shoes.

Let me show you what features has made this shoe style the second best choice for kids with wide feet:

✅ Extra Depth: Shoes that provide extra depth allow the child’s feet to fit deeply inside the shoes and prevents the top part of their feet (instep) from rubbing against the top part of the shoes.

✅ Rounder Toe-Box: The rounder toe-box is going to allow your child to freely wiggle his/her toes and prevent them from rubbing against one another or the side of the shoes.

✅ Supportive: This feature is going to reduce the impact that your kids’ feet take when they come in contact with the ground. This is a very supportive style which makes it ideal for children who are dealing with foot pain or need an orthotic to be fitted inside their shoes.

✅ Durable: This is one of the most durable shoe styles that I have fitted before. This shoe style comes with a reinforced suede material on the side which is going to prevent your child from poking a hole in the shoes.

Additional features:

  • Velcro Closure or Shoelaces.
  • Removable Insoles.
  • Accommodates Orthotics.

Cons:

  • The child’s feet might get hot during the summer due to the suede material.

#3 Saucony Baby Ride ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This has been the third most popular shoe style for kids with wide feet. This style is available from toddlers sizes all the way up to little kid sizes and comes in medium (“M”), wide (“W”), and extra wide (“XW”) widths.

Parents love how affordable and durable this shoe style is. I recommend this shoe style for children with wide feet but it won’t fit children with high insteps since it doesn’t provide extra depth. I also don’t recommend this shoe style for children who wear orthotics.

Let me show you what features has made this shoe style the third best choice for kids with wide feet:

✅ Lightweight and Flexible: This shoe style is very lightweight and flexible which makes it perfect for toddlers who are learning how to walk or fully walking.

✅ Breathable: This feature is going to allow your child’s feet to breathe and prevent the feet from sweating excessively.

✅ Affordable: This shoe style is one of the most affordable one considering how versatile and well-made it is.

Additional features:

  • Velcro Closure or Shoelaces.
  • Removable Insoles

Cons:

  • Doesn’t accommodate orthotics.
